Bump, whats going on with this bad larry?


I’ve had one hell of a year. House flooded resulting in a whole house renovation that I have done 99% of the work myself on, then been slammed at work, lots of turn over, worked on equipment way more than I ever have. Just one thing after another. That said, I just got back to working on this sucker!


Rear end is in it for good! Was planning to have it sitting on its own weight tonight but I’m stuck in traffic in Atlanta trying to get home from a job site.


Front shock tabs finally skinned


Rear inner fenders boxed in and painted






Dash and console coming together




Fender pieces in process, used the same pattern for the screens as I did on the basket in the back






Front frame rails are painted up!

Wondered what happened these days there are only 4 builds that get updated and I thought we lost this one too. I like this thing a lot .

Jeep is sitting on its own weight!!!



Got that Cali lean going without the engine/trans/TC installed





We’ve been planning to use a remote oil filter since day one because the factory oil filter mount sticks almost straight out from the motor 8” and would hit frame rails. So the time finally came to get the billet piece installed on the motor and rebuild the oil pump while we were at it and we discovered a broken front timing cover. That’s led to a little deeper dive into the motor, but hopefully Toms going to have that finished pretty soon so we can get it installed and see how good a job I did guessing spring rates!

Some brake line details. These clamps are bad ass for the hard lines down the links, super clean!

Did you make those brake line clamps yourself, or can they be bought somewhere?

Rig is looking great.

They’re bought! Came from AJK Offroad. Also using their hydro hose clamps to run steering hoses and brake line down a front link.
